Global Beat, KFAI 04/14/10

Today’s edition of Global Beat skewed heavily towards the R&B side of things with new cuts from Sharon Jones, Erykah Badu, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Quadron (a soulful combo from Copenhagen) alongside classics from Al Green, The Counts and Gil Scott Heron as well as the usual mix of Afrobeat, samba, salsa and reggae.
